Topic - Back To Blood
Tom Wolfe is back -- back with a new novel, of course, but also back with the big characters, the loud prose and the skewering of the cultural elite that have been the touchstones of his work. What he is not back with is some new object of stinging satire. "Radical Chic" and "The Bonfire of the Vanities" were such pleasures to read because no one at the time was saying what Mr. Wolfe was saying and how he was saying it. "Back to Blood," unfortunately, is the Wolfe novel we've all read before.
